When I click on a menu item on the sidebar, I need be able to set the link to a different color/bold it.

I would normally do this with CSS using the a:selected tag and setting the font-weight:bold

I'm not able to do this because with SS a new page is loaded and the link selected is no longer available.

How can I know which page is selected so I can affect the link using CSS.

You did it! Thank you! I have been pulling my hair wondering how I was going to be able to solve this. I've looked at that tutorial 100 times and didn't get it.

Finally for some reason when you sent me the link, I got it and was able (very quickly) implement what I needed to do.

Thanks a million,
